Cooplands Sales Director, Claire Barnes, has confirmed that the store, previously home to the Franklin Bakery, is due to be fitted out over the next few weeks with the company aiming to open during the summer.
At the time of writing the company are currently looking for staff for a number of roles within the shop.
The Spilsby shop marks the latest part of Cooplands expansion – as they have recently acquired shops in Horncastle, Market Rasen, Skegness and Mablethorpe. The company confirmed that they are also looking forward to opening a new shop in Louth later in the year.
Coopland & Son (Scarborough) Ltd. was originally founded in 1885 as a Pork Butcher/Baker in Market Street, Scarborough, by the present Managing Director’s Great Grandfather. Now in the fouth generation of the family, the group are the third largest bakery group in the country with over 100 shops, mainly around North and West Yorkshire, Teeside and increasingly into Lincolnshire and other areas, and provide a wide-range of baked products, from sandwiches, pies and pasties, fresh bread, cakes and much more.
Good News For The Town
The new shop is good news for the town as it means that the empty shop vacated when the previous business closed will be brought back in to use, as well as development of a number of new jobs for the area.
